Well I'm going to have to say it was a successful experiment. I was able to PB my half marathon race off my hard marathon training and not injure myself in the process so I'm pretty happy with that. My time 1:19:25 is getting me to the stage were I feel I'm hitting my peak but although I'd be happy to stay right here I think I have more in me. Well I didn't think this at the 18th K mark but I do now, isn't that always the way?
I'll let the photos and videos tell the rest of the story. Got to drink a few more beers and eat something. Thanks for all your recent comments. I was thinking of you out there today. Photos: Me and one of the fast guys from Kawachinagano RC and Me and a video taken at the finish line.
By the way, that time gave me 3rd in my age group 40~49 years , a medal :) and it was 9th overall out of about 800 runners.
